When members of the Owings Mills softball team stepped on the field against Bohemia Manor yesterday, they had accomplished something that no other team in the school's history had experienced: an appearance in the state championship game.Once the game began, Owings Mills had another new experience. For the first time this season, the top-seeded Golden Eagles were on the receiving end of a lopsided game.Third-seeded Bohemia Manor (18-3) from Cecil County pounded out 17 hits en route to a 13-2 rout in the Class 1A final at Randazzo Park.

In recent weeks, The Baltimore Sun, The New York Times and other newspapers have been carrying advertisements announcing the auction next week of Bohemia Manor Farm, which is perhaps one of Maryland's most historic estates, dating to the 17th century. Augustine Herrman, a Czechoslovakian cartographer who was forced to leave Prague because of religious persecution after the battle of White Mountain during the Thirty Years War, founded the estate in what is now Cecil County. After leaving Prague, he traveled to the Netherlands and then went to work as an envoy for the Dutch West India Co. In 1633, Herrman left the Netherlands and set sail for New Amsterdam, which is now New York City.

Howard softball coach Chuck Rice said he thought he would never coach another player who would pitch a perfect game. He was happy to be wrong. Kensey O'Neill struck out 11 in retiring every batter she faced Wednesday as the host Lions beat visiting River Hill, 13-0. Kensey worked five innings because of the mercy rule and had one of her team's five extra-base hits, a double.

With 1:16 remaining in the first half of last night's Class 1A state semifinal between the sixth-ranked Glenelg girls basketball team and Bohemia Manor, Glenelg students sitting behind the Eagles' basket began to chant. "It's all O-VER," yelled the students. "It's all O-VER." They were being kind. Glenelg's 61-27 victory at UMBC was sealed midway through the first quarter. The Gladiators (18-7) broke a 2-2 game with a 13-0 run and led 21-5 going into the second quarter. "I thought the competition would be a lot more than what it was, being that we're in the final four," said Glenelg sophomore guard Chrissy Starcher, who had a team-high 14 points, all in the first half.

THE TRUE MEANING of the word Bohemia is, according to American Heritage College dictionary, a historical region and former kingdom of present-day Czech Republic established between the first and fifth centuries. Most people today know its colloquial meaning, which is a community of people with artistic or literary tastes with unconventional manners and mores. To the people of Cecil County, though, the word Bohemia has a more local resonance because it commonly is known as the land that Dutch emigre Augustine Herrman established and named in 1661.

The No. 15 River Hill Hawks had been pecking away at No. 13 Eastern Tech for six innings in the Class 2A state baseball final at Ripken Stadium on Saturday, but aside from one run they had little to show for it. Then, with one out in the bottom of the seventh and still down a run, the Hawks took flight. They used a walk, two errors and two hits, the final one coming from junior center fielder Christian Laidley, who drove in starting pitcher Jeff Crosswhite with the winning run in the 3-2 victory.

In its beginning, mercury glass was considered a knockoff of the real silver furnishing the houses of the well-to-do, says Diane Lytwyn, author of Pictorial Guide to Silvered Mercury Glass (Collector Books, $24.95). Now, the well-to-do are collecting it. According to Lytwyn, mercury glass was first produced in Bohemia (now the Czech Republic) and came to popularity in the 1850s. Contrary to its name, elemental mercury was not used to produce tableware. In fact, "silvered glass," an alternative title for mercury glass, better describes how it was produced.

WASHINGTON - A group of high school students from Cecil County has spent the past two months mucking through streams, hunting for insects and mining the Web for environmental facts. On Tuesday, the six students from Bohemia Manor High School in Chesapeake City put on their best clothes, took a train to Washington and spoke to a congressional subcommittee about ways to save the Chesapeake Bay. The students were participating in "Chesapeake Bay in Your Community: A Restoration Plan," a new project started by Rep. Wayne T. Gilchrest, an Eastern Shore Republican.

Bohemia Manor story needed newer photo In regard to the article "Finding Bohemia on the Chesapeake" (Oct. 26): I grew up spending the summers in Hack's Point on the Bohemia River. This is the "small stream" that separated Herman's estate, but you failed to mention its name. Also, I notice that the picture you show was taken in 1954. If this is in fact the "house that stands today" belonging to the Bayard family, why such an old photo? Also if it is, you did not mention the remains of, what we knew as, the original manor house; which lays just to the southeast of today's manor house.

To most fans at the Class 1A state girls basketball semifinals, the "Big D" would be Dunbar, which has won the past two 2A championships, but to the No. 4 Poets, the "Big D" is defense. The Poets' swarming full-court press overwhelmed previously unbeaten Bohemia Manor last night and propelled Dunbar to a 58-34 victory in their 1A semifinal at UMBC's RAC Arena. The Eagles, from Chesapeake City in Cecil County, simply could not contend with a pesky Poets defense that hounded them into traveling violations and ball-handling mistakes.
